MOSCOW, June 19 (Itar-Tass) - Deputy secretary of the United Russia party’s General Council, Sergei Zheleznyak has urged a probe into the reported instances of US secret service’ access to Russian citizens’ private information.
“We should not let the affair be played down. There should be thorough investigation of all instances of US companies and secret services getting access to private information concerning Russian citizens,” Zheleznyak, a deputy speaker of the State Duma, told the lower house of parliament at the beginning of the full-scale session during the customary series of ten-minute political statements by Duma factions.
